that the committee does not become a vehicle for creating international legal obligations contrary to u.s. interests. could you further explain why you think it is in the u.s. interest to have an american serving on the committee created by this convention? >> one of the ways in which the committee can have a legal effect even though its recommendations are nonbinding is through the creation of customary international law. the committee clearly does not have the power to create it, but its recommendations that other states react and adopt, there can be a basis for a claim that there is customary international law therefore the opportunity for the united states to appear to object to interpretations of the committee that might be thought to give rise to obligations could potentially defeat the formation that the united states would view as unacceptable. there are examples of this occurring in the context of, for example, the human rights committee taking positions that certain rules of the state department they are not agreeing with. not ratifying the convention does not remove the ability to object

dollars and really the mta and the department of public work convinced us that we need to invest first in the core and in the state of good repair. we have a lot of needs and there's a lot of expansion going on in the city and county and i know one of the mayors charges to us as a group is to meet that demand but we do find in looking at the data and hearing from the experts both planning and transportation experts that we need to invest in what we have now because the bottom is crumbling under us. and so i would -- the biggest take away from learning about transportation and the needs in san francisco, i think is that we need to invest in the core before we enhance and expand our system. bart as you know is near its capacity. they have 400,000 riders now, expecting 500,000 in the next few years. at 750 now, they'll be well over capacity and they're projecting up to a million passengers by 2026. so there's a lot of improvement that is required by bart as well. bicyclist and pedestrian safety, i know that this agency has done a lot in the number of years, starting to roll out the

's bayview, that's potrero hill, visitacion valley, it's a little hollywood, it's dogpatch. it used to be the portola, half of it. my heart is still with you, but i'm glad like the speaker said, it is whole. and that is what's important, is that that neighborhood remains whole so that our city will be whole. you agree? [cheering and applauding] cheers >> so, a few years back there was this little idea to take back the bayview and really began to rewrite the history and the narrative that we often hear about in bayview. and it actually started, ironically, with a small little abandoned swath of land that has grown up to become the cuseda garden. and it's the thought child and the physical manifestation of hard work, of a few community leaders that got together and rolled up their sleeves and got to work. and tonight i have the honor to introduce one of the co-founders, his name is jeffery betcher. where are you? get up here. and jeff is going to introduce to you as he escorts ms. annette young smith to the stage. this lady, ladies and gentlemen, is a lifetime achievement award winner

at 1660 mission street. we have one of many buildings served by fire escapes. they are typically used when there's a required means of existing or egressfrom the building. this building has a main stairway and all these fire escapes. i don't know about the backside. it probably has more exits that would be typically required to have. >> typically fire escapes are the second. the first is for existing buildings. my guess is the building has been broken up. that's why they add more than one fire escape. >> and in fact one of basis of the building code is to get people how the. how do you get people out safely? >> right and the cold always says, if one is blocked there should be another one in 99 percent of buildings >> and there are limitations on how you exit. you can't exit from one tenant space to another if that space is locked. that's why we have extra fire escapes on this building. let's look up at these fire escapes for a second. the fire escapes have a few specific elements. and we'll talk in detail about what they are. they include a way out on top fire escape balcony. the fire esca
o'rielly have been confirmed by the senate. joining us this week to discuss the sec's agenda for the coming year, sam gustin of "time magazine." what you think is the number one priority for the fcc? >> i would say the biggest priority, the biggest immediate priority, is the spectrum incentive option that is scheduled for next summer. that is enacted by the to sell to sell thee fcc spectrum to address the growing spectrum crunch, which is being driven by the massive proliferation of smartphones and tablets. >> assess confirmation hearing, tom wheeler talked about the upcoming spectrum auctions. here is what he had to say. i want to get your response. [video clip] >> the incentive option, as i said, is something that has never been tried before. , liken it to a rubik's cube that over on the side of the cube, you have got to provide an incentive for broadcasters to want to auction their spectrum. on this side of the cube, you have got to provide a product that is structured in such a way that incentivizes the wireless carriers or whoever the bidders thate to want to bid for spe
the rescue with andrew stephens and i asked him to walk us through what happened. here's what he said. >> trapped in one of the hotel rooms. screaming desperately and smashing the glass windows in a desperate attempt to get out. one of my colleagues went out there trying to face another colleague. managed to get a mattress, i think, to float to get a family out. it included people who could not get out by themselves. >> cnn i-reporters continue to send us images of the typhoon. we have several videos from the city. the river is swollen by heavy rains. it turned into a raging and murky mess flooding parts of the city. look at that video. unbelievable. here is another view of the river. the residents brave the aftermath and see the floodwaters from a bridge overhead. one more view where heavy surf and huge waves slammed the coastline. we continue on with this story now. the pictures we are seeing on the ground show the destruction the typhoon left behind. the scale is most apparent from another angle. take a look at this photo, the killer storm as seen from space. this picture was tweet
space for us to react to the issues reacting in time and making sure that we are looking in the forward and not just in the past, at the california, department of justice and one of the issues that i know that brown did is look at all of the statutory required report and say did someone actually use this or did it go into a box? and so, for me, it would be great if you guys could talk about that or give a sense of what we called and, if we have any sense of whether this is just on the list that is required to an admin code or whether we really identified that there is something who use its and it is valuable information and because i know that i feel for myself that there is always information that i want from the department and i feel like recognizing the resources and that i want to make sure that they have room to be responsible to this commission. and just keeping up what was in the past. >> thank you, commissioner loftus, for your comments. and you are right, that is one of the reasons why, we started to work on this and created this resolution, is because, we really did not have t
